Sridhar is a clinician with interest in applied research in dementia in low- and middle-income country settings. He runs a clinic for elderly with mental illness including dementia in SCARF hospital, Chennai. Sridhar and his team have adapted CST for India, and they deliver CST as a clinical service at our centre. They also train facilitators for CST and thus far have trained over 50 service providers in India. With the restrictions in delivering in-person group interventions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team are currently testing the feasibility of delivering CST virtually in Chennai.
